New Elementary school almost finished

June 12, 2007

Albany - Dougherty County School Board members toured the county's newest school today. This is Live Oak Elementary School on Gillionville Road where about 525 students will report to class in the fall.

There's still a lot of work to do, but construction is moving along well. At first look, you may be taken aback by the paint job and design.  School board Chairman Michael Windom says give it a chance.

He said, "We intentionally tried to make this school a little different from the design perspective than our other schools because we wanted something very exciting."

"The project is moving along well, it's on schedule," said Robert Fowler, "It will definitely open the first of August when schools starts everywhere else." Construction on the $14.7 Million dollar building should be finished by the second week of July.
